Friday Report From The Road | Carter’s Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Most every Friday I blog about the radio show I do with the 180 Crew at WNWS 101.5fm. Friday’s between 9-11am we talk outdoor living, gardening, Koi Ponds and the like. But, this Friday I am not in the studio with Dan & Sea Bass… I will be calling in between 8:30 and 9am to give a report from the road.

Every year I drive up to Chicago to train and earn CEU’s to maintain our Certification, Carter’s Nursery, Pond & Patio are Master Certified Aquascape Contractors. We are ranked in the Top 100 Water Feature Contractors in the world 🌎

This year is extra special to me personally because I brought my son, Jacob Carter with me to take part in classes and training for the 1st. time! He is working in the family business now and wants to learn!

Jacob is one of the youngest guys here for training. He is a much better student than I was at his age 😊 I’m a Proud papa!

I will give a full report next week on all the goings on in the big city and all the new technology that’s available 😉

Tune in for my Report & have a Great weekend!

Waterfall Wednesday | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Another #Waterfallwednesday is upon us 😊 I ❤️ Waterfalls! Here are two (2) brand new Waterfalls that were just set in motion. These are on the same feature, and it’s a Very special Water Garden! I will show this whole project in a future Blog, once it’s complete… It’s still a “work in progress”.

I slowed the shutter speed down a little on this picture to really show the smooth, flowing feel of this waterfall. I think it turned out to have a very natural look and feel. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

This Waterfall & Stream enter a different part of the pond & create a very natural look and feel. The driftwood adds a nice touch too. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

 

I LOVE seeing a new Water Garden come to life! There’s nothing like it 😊

I hope y’all enjoy my offerings for #WaterfallWednesday!

Project Spotlight: Naturalistic Pondless Waterfall | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I ❤️ Pondless Waterfalls! I love designing them. I love building them. I Love how Low Maintenance they are! I Love the way they change people’s lives! SO, this morning I wanted to share the latest Pondless Waterfall Feature that we just installed.

This new Pondless Waterfall was just turned on for the 1st. Time right before this picture was taken. It looks so natural.

Most of the Mossy Boulders and stones were sourced from a creek on site, which makes it so much easier to create a very natural feel and look.

Creating a natural look and feel has a LOT to do with the materials you use. Moss and lichen add an instant effect to a feature that says, “I’ve been here a while”…

I hope you like this newly built feature, I know the homeowners do 😊 Have a great day!

Monday Morning Moment Of Zen | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I just Love these eroded stones. Time and running water can erode and split most anything, including solid stone! We try to use these old pieces in our work to give a feature a natural look and feel. Many times it’s a subtle point of interest that doesn’t get noticed until much later. Then one day, months or even years down the road I get a call from a client saying they just love their Water Feature & then they tell me about a special little something they discovered in the stream or Waterfalls 💦 That is always a good day! 😊

Unique stones can give a water feature a naturalistic feel.

I hope this brings a little Zen to your day 😊
